    I bought a set of front carpet mats for an A3 last week from Audi. £40 + VAT. Guess S3 ones will be a bit more. Rears were £25 + VAT.

    Come on now. It's a bit of plastic that you're hardly (if) ever gonna see. Save your money for something else. And man up a bit. What happened to common sense? Seems OK to drive? Carry on!

    fixing number plates

    Another thumbs up for velcro. Although I didn't use quite as much as Helifella! Bought the pack of 2 strips from Halfords for about £3. Cut into smaller strips.

    Mobile police units

    I regularly have a mobile speed trap on the road right outside my house. It's a busy road. Dead straight and wide for half a mile at least. It's hard to keep to 30 and not many do.

    How bad does this look? :o(

    Mine was black like that when I replaced it a couple of weeks ago, but that had been on the car at least 18 months. It ran with no problems though.

    Fuel cap - what do you do with yours?

    If it doesn't fit on your hinge just spin the cap round there are 3 or 4 slots in it. One of them will fit. Another way to do it without having to fiddle around with anything is to put the nozzle in and then just rest the cap on top of the nozzle. Easy.

    rear brake caliper bolts - HELP!

    If you're only doing the pads you only need two spanners and a wind back tool. (IIRC). To just do the pads you don't need to remove the carriers so no breaker bar needed.
